Parasoft is a member of Sun Microsystems' Sun ONE Studio Extension Partner Program, a community of vendors who are building complementary products and modules that work in conjunction with the Sun ONE Studio IDE, formerly the Forte for Java IDE.
According to the company, as software quality issues continue to plague today's businesses, the need for an effective means of reducing and preventing software errors increases. Parasoft says that Jtest is the first development tool of its type to automate all aspects of unit testing for Java technology applications.
Jtest's is designed to automatically generate test cases with the click of a button. The company claims that traditional unit testing requires developers to manually write test cases to test each Java class, a task that is often overlooked in the rush to get to market. And Jtest is designed to eliminate the time consuming, tedious tasks of manually performing white box, black box, and regression testing.
In addition to automatically enforcing traditional coding standards, Jtest offers rules support for Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB)) components, Design by Contract (DbC), and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology, servlets and project metrics. Jtest now integrates with Sun ONE Studio to provide Automated Error Prevention for Java developers within their own environment.
